    Would be a shame. Such little talent.

    Well he is 40 plus fights in getting 3 million dollars and Joshua is 23 fights in getting 20 plus million dollars. One face on each champion.

    He's such a deluded *****. I can't wait to see the back of this hype job but his handlers continue to keep him out of harm's way.

    He's got a long way to go then. What he earning right now...5,10 million max? Meanwhile Canelo is on like 30 million a fight and that's just the DAZN contract. Factor in all the other bits and pieces, and he's earning probably 70-80 million a year. Then you've got AJ who's doing 20 million a fight, with insane sponsorships in the UK, so I'd have him around the 70-80 million area too.

    But those aren't the real moneymakers. Those two above are a stretch for poor old Deonkey, but they don't hold a candle to the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Leo Messi and LeBron James...

    AJ-Wilder is a big fight but it's no Mayweather-Pacquiao. Despite what they say, boxing isn't back. The popularity still isn't there and AJ-Wilder is required before we can get back to anywhere near where we were 20+ years ago.

    He will be when he robs the bodybuilder Joshua of those shiny gold belts. And takes that 50 percent split. Everythings going as planned. Well done bomb squad.

    Mayweather did it when it seemed impossible.

    Wilder is nowhere near as good as Mayweather, but it's more simple for him to line up the needed fights. If he beats Joshua, wins a rematch, and then fights Fury--win or lose--he'll probably be number one. Unlikely, but not impossible.

    I think his advisor is playing him.

    The DAZN deal would have set him up for life, and the life of his posterity three generations ahead.

    This coming from a guy who turned down a $100,000,000 contract because there were too many zeroes in it :lol: :lol: :lol:

    That’s probably what he’s being told by those he foolishly trusts.
    I’ve seen all kinds of dumb but to let someone string you along like this, for this long, that’s another level.

    Talks of a mental midget.

    Im not so sure I ever wanted to see a boxer lose so bad and to an already defeated opponent by Joshua just to see the after math of this circus act. lol
